DRESS OR MESS!?

I wish Rhianna´s dress would have had a little more fabric 😉

For her to wear this dress to the Grammy Awards 2015 was a very bold choice and this is what we want from Rihanna. She looked stunning in a Giambattista Valli gown. For any other event she would have definitely been on the best dress list but the Grammys I think its a little bit over the top. She looks like she has been inserted into a cake topper.
RihannaGrammys2015She waited in the car and only appeared six minutes after they actually closed the red carpet to start with the event. This bad ass bitch knows how to create a moment and pull all the attention. Nevertheless its the right dress for her but the wrong dress for this particular event I think.

Princess Elizabeth in Berlin

I saw Elizabeth Bank wearing this Ellie Saab gown at the Berlin Film Festival and thought: best dress right there! It is gorgeous. It is a little bit “Christmas Barbie” and you get the impression her team encouraged her by saying: “…go for it Elizabeth, you can do it…!”

Again, it is an amazing dress and she carries it very well but Berlin Film Festival is just not the right event, in my opinion, to wear this red glitter princess gown.

LESS (HUMAN) IS MORE

Have you seen Kendall Jenner at Mercedes Benz New York fashion week?! In her Celine dress she looks apart. She is actually looking less human every day which is essential in modeling. You are not supposed to be a human being, you should be a mannequin. Good job Kendall!

She clearly is the model of the moment, rocking the hell out of this Celine dress.

…and can we just take a moment and look at Chloe. She looks fantastic!

I just look at this picture and I smell money. People say money can´t buy beauty but please, look at the way they look!!! They are the living proof that money can buy you everything…almost 😉

NEW FACE OF VERSACE !?

Kate Hudson, seen in Paris at the Haute Couture Show in an amazing cut out dress by Versace, which looks like she just ripped it off Sophia Vergara 😉

Kate Hudson with her mother Goldie Hawn and Donatelle Versace looked a bit like the ghost of Christmas past, present and future to me but I think Kate Hudson is gonna end up being the next face of Versace. Here she is showcasing the second to last look of the runway show, which highlights her importance to the fashion house. Also she was seen in Versace at the Golden Globes this year!

The queen of “over the shoulder booty shot” is on point in this quite unforgiving dress. She probably sprayed parts of her body with hairspray before she put it on, to keep the parts in place.

RICK OWENS EXPOSES PENIS

We have seen breasts exposed on the runway before. But what we saw at Rick Owens Fashion Show in January 2015 in Paris was definitely a first.

Rick says this collection was inspired by his “desire to create a more accepting culture for male nakedness”. Unfortunately the King of Avant-Garde might have walked exactly in the other direction by highlighting exactly why male genitalia should not be shown publicly.

If the guys were Versace models maybe we would be singing a different tune but this was just distasteful!!!

Has Kim Kardashian undergone Chemotherapy ?!

This week I was confronted with pictures of a bold Kim Kardashian… I thought she must be sick; cancer maybe but…

…actually, when I researched it I found out that the pictures showed 23 old Make-up artist Jordan James Parke who had undergone plastic surgery to look like his idol.

What he said was shocking yet entertaining so I wanted to share it with you!

“I laugh when people try to insult me by telling me I look plastic or fake. Do they think I’m going for the natural look? If I was, I’d ask for my money back.”

Jordan reportedly spent over over EUR 100.000 (financed by his family and ex-boyfriends) in plastic surgery to get the Kardashian look. I can only hope that the lips will look better after the swelling and I am sure in a couple of months he will be sorry about having posted his “new lips” with the post.operative swelling 😉

Here you can see what Jordan looked like as a kid and before he started seeing the doctor. My personal opinion is that 50 injections are definitely too much… He actually told me that this isn´t post-op swelling…it is the actual look he is going for!

Aren´t we all looking forward to Kim´s reaction ??? 😉

REI KAWAKUBO

Bildschirmfoto 2014-10-19 um 23.13.41

Upon seeing Japan’s first Louis Vuitton store in 1978, Rei Kawakubo discovered the allure of French craftsmanship and art de vivre. Today, the creator of Comme des Garçons applies her radical, refined aesthetic to a House icon, revisiting the Sac Plat with boldly conceived asymmetrical cutouts and raw-edged details to produce this provocative “Bag with Holes.” Sleek and capacious, the bag is a natural for travel in durable Monogram canvas. The practical insert pouch keeps belongings secure.

 

HER INSPIRATIONS

Breaking the traditional Louis Vuitton Monogram was the premise of this one work—which was to find something that would be new, some kind of new value.

Although there are various ways of breaking to create something new, this time I tried to play it straight: I simply made some holes in the fabric of the bag. I generally like small bags.

I feel that Louis Vuitton is the house that most beautifully and skilfully transforms what is tradition into what is now.

Yet I always approach all of my work in a way that is exactly the same: I look to create something new.

When designing the bag for this project, I was looking for some new design, something that hadn’t been done before, something within the limits of possibility.

BIOGRAPHY

After originally studying art and literature, REI KAWAKUBO quickly changed track, working for a textile company and then becoming a self-taught fashion designer.

Believing that there are no limits to creativity in the fashion process, she has constantly radically pursued and iconoclastically achieved perpetual progress in her field, breaking the rules and forming new ones that the entire industry has paid attention to.

These features have become the hallmarks of Comme des Garçons, the label that REI KAWAKUBO founded in 1969 and incorporated as a company in 1973.

REI KAWAKUBO has an input into all areas of the creative process, from graphics, advertising and store interiors to designing and making clothes and accessories; each is inextricably linked.

In 1981 she staged her first, and now legendary, Paris show for Comme des Garçons. After an initial outcry, her iconoclastic aesthetic and her love of black changed the wider global – and more commonly perceived – notion of beauty in fashion forever. REI KAWAKUBO called her label Comme des Garçons – ‘Like the Boys’ – just because she liked the sound of it.
